How Do I Update/Amend My Mortgage License Record?

Licensees must keep their records updated in NMLS in accordance with the laws and rules to ensure that the Department has the most accurate information and to avoid any potential violations.  Updates/Amendments that must be filed with the Department include, but are not limited to, changes in executive officers, ownership, legal name, legal status, address, trade names, and branch changes.  Please note that some amendments require prior approval by the Department before they become effective.


All mortgage license amendment filings must be made through the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry (NMLS).  Click HERE to access NMLS.
